It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

I got a lot done tonight on "Where's My Soul". That's the fun one with the growled vocals. In fact, I did the lead vocals tonight. I still need to comp them, though. I can work on that bit by bit over the weekend.

John made up some really fun horn parts. This one was interesting, because I didn't have any real ideas for them first. With most of the other songs, I've already got them input as MIDI notes first, then we replace the sampled sounds with real horns. But this time, it was all John. His ideas, his playing. And it's really coool.

So, now I just have to recut some bits in the rhythm guitar, and I'm thinking I'll bring in someone to sing some little backing vocal bits. I'll have to see if maybe Sherri can come in.

I also have to sparkle up the drum tracks. It's pretty much a loop right now. The song is supposed to be pretty stiff and mechanical, so I'm not going to go overboard to make it sound natural, but there are some spots where it needs a snare fill and some crash cymbals.

I've been practicing a lot getting ready for the gig on the 30th, too. I'm very excited to do that one, and I hope I can get a fairly decent crowd. We'll just have to see...
